We got our little girl at 6 weeks and she’s never been very affectionate - not excited to see the family (there are 4 of us), not when we come home from school or work, or in the morning - she just sort of opens an eye to see who’s there.. Yes, before the questions, we act excited to see her. There is always someone home with her interacting, playing. Plus I take over after work and play with her from 6pm until bedtime. We hug her, kiss her, etc., and she just didn’t seem interested. We accepted that maybe that was her personality and after reading so many posts about aloof GSD’s figured that was the case. However, when friends and neighbors come over she is excited, licks them to death (we don’t get licks), jumps in their lap, wants to be pet, etc., The exact opposite. She’s been in socialization and training since we got her and she’s an angel. Never aggressive or mean to anyone - never snaps or growls. Just perfect, except for the affection. It’s a very clear distinction of how she’s “aloof” with the people that live here and affectionate and attentive to strangers. Just trying to see if anyone has had the same experience. Will it change? Thanks and sorry for the long post.
